We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

We're Seeking New Trustee(s)

We are currently seeking at least one new trustee for our Board. We welcome applications from people with a wide range of skills and experience; at this time, we are particularly seeking a trustee with skills and experience in education. 

Trustees are not remunerated but reasonable expenses can be met. Trustees are appointed for a term of 4 years, extendable for up to 3 terms.

CCH is a young, accredited museum based in Cambridge, England, with a growing visitor base and an established and successful learning programme. As a registered charity our trustees have a series of statutory responsibilities and also act as ambassadors for the museum as well as steering the organisation in pursuit of our charitable aims. Individual trustees are expected to use their specific skills, knowledge or experience to help the board of trustees to reach sound decisions for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Time commitments: attend Trustee Board meetings (normally held six times per year in Cambridge) and on occasion to promote the museum at events and meetings with key people. Generate and process key documents and papers. New trustees are required to attend an induction process at the museum.

Closing Date: ongoing


- Passion and commitment to the charity and its strategic objectives;
- Knowledge, commitment to and experience of the UK education sector, ideally including good networking capabilities and strong personal connections;
- Strong interpersonal skills with demonstrable skills in fostering and promoting a collaborative team environment;

- Experience of operating at a senior level achieving objectives within an organisation;
- Qualifications as a teacher or similar related profession.

How to apply: 
Email a CV and covering letter outlining your reasons for applying and the skills you would bring to the role in the first instance to:

Lisa McGerty

Your application will be acknowledged, and our Chair of the Board of Trustees will contact you in due course. (As the museum is currently closed due to Coronavirus, please bear with us if you do not receive an immediate response.)

CCH is committed to equality of opportunity.
